Re: Scary ... What the hell happened ?

To stop a car from shimmying while driving you need to swing the steering wheel slowly back and forth a few times, this will usually do the trick. It can't shimmy while you're turning as you're side...

Re: What roadside repairs have you made to keep your A going

That reminds me of the time I replaced the 351M engine in a Ford Explorer w/a 302, I drove it about 3 or 4 miles to my buddy at the muffler shop to have custom exhaust pipes made. talk about LOUD.

Re: Gas Shutoff/empty carburetor for overnight/long term parking.

You could shorten it up and reflare it.


Maybe you could rotate it to a different plane?

Re: Flush oil/anti-freeze mix from crankcase?

After getting the head off and inspecting the head gasket it looked fine, no signs of leaking. Although #3 cylinder shows signs of being the culprit. Upon examining the head I see that it has an old...

Re: Ares Stud Removal Tool +1

Does the Ares tool damage the threads where it grips them? How long does the stud part that goes into the extractor have to be?

Flush oil/anti-freeze mix from crankcase?

Our '31 CCPU had those nuts on the FRONT of the axle when we got it, didn't take long to get them switched around.

Re: Where and how to mount disconnect switch in Tudor without new holes in metal.

That would be an easy reach from inside the car IF one leaves the floor board out.

Re: Sick ahooga horn

Those tabs like to break off and none of the vendors sell a replacement part separately. I ended up soldering one back together. Sorry, no picture.

Re: Gas Shutoff/empty carburetor for overnight/long term parking.

Also, if/when you use teflon tape on the fuel fittings pipe threads be sure to place it 1 or 2 threads back from the end to ensure that none of it gets into places where it's not wanted.
